Klef Raraha is a small Caribbean island in British territory with an area of 870 acres. Klef Raraha, meaning Citrus Reef in English, is operated as a citrus plantation that is now owned by the islanders who number 465 at the latest census. The local population speaks Papiamentu and English. Klef Raraha was once owned by a family of Portuguese origins (the Lopes family). The family operated the island as well as a number of other investments, however the present generation did not desire to live on the island. Since the cost to upkeep the island was rising and citrus prices were not the best, the family opted to sell Klef Raraha. For a few years, in the late 1990s, the island was for sale, marketed as a tourist destination at a very high price, but no takers came forward. Finally, the island was offered to the workers at a much reduced price, thought to be in the neighbourhood of 25 million dollars.
